When your tried-and-true chicken recipes start to make dinner as predictable as the refrain from an overplayed pop song, it's time to call in the troops. Specifically, it's time for your chicken recipes to get their sexy back. And that's where these saucy little numbers come in.

A little curry and fish sauce, creamy cashews, smoky spices, funky brown miso—even lyrically light green tea…all play starring roles in these muy caliente chicken recipes. And what we love the most about them is the fact that they never phone it in—each one is simple to prepare, packed with a ton of flirty flavors and dances to its own beat.

Now that's sexy.
